Turtle wax colour magic plus or T - cut colour fast?

As the title says I'm undecided which one to use.
Have previously used colour fast , but would like views and opppinions on both?

Cheers

John.

Both are completely opposite products, T-cut is finely abrasive and will rub away a microscopic layer of the paint leaving it smooth and therefore shiny. Wax leaves a microscopic layer of wax on the car leaving it smooth and therfore shiny.

IMO Only use T-cut if you have to. e.g. sunfaded paint or removing tar spots or scratches.

Any other time use wax.

Beany i think he's referring to the coloured t-cut not the standard stuff.....

(both are cr@p IMHO) if you after giving the car a good clean and getting a shine back you want to wash, then clay then polish it and apply a quality wax
